How to Use USB Speakers at the Same Time as Regular Speakers

USB speakers plug into a computer's USB port rather than the standard 3.5mm input that regular speakers use. Once you connect the USB speakers to the computer, the operating system will automatically switch the audio stream to the USB speakers. However, by using a secondary, external sound card, you can plug the USB speaker into the computer and the 3.5mm speakers into the secondary sound card.

Skill level:Moderately Easy

Things you need

External sound cardAudio playing program

Instructions

1 Plug the USB speakers into the computer's USB drive.

2 Install the software driver for the speakers. It should come on a disk with the speakers.

3 Plug an external sound card into the computer by connecting to the USB port or a FireWire port.

4 Plug the regular (3.5mm jack) speaker into the audio output port of the external sound card.

5 Launch an audio playing program that has the ability to choose output sources. Programs that commonly can perform this function are audio editing programs, video editing programs, and some movie playback software.

6 Access the program's audio preferences. Choose the external sound card as the desired output option. All audio played through the program will be routed to the speakers connected to the external sound card. The rest of the computer's audio will be routed to the connected USB speakers.
